GameStop’s Retro Shop Debuts With Hard-to-Find RPG’s Like Illusion Of Gaia

GameStop opened its Retro Classics section today, listing games from vintage consoles like the NES, SNES, Nintendo 64, Sega Dreamcast, Sony PlayStation, and Sega Genesis. The site advertises “unforgettable RPG’s” like The Legend of Dragoon for PsOne and Skies of Arcadia for Dreamcast.

GameStop also lists a number of hard-to find RPG’s, including Enix’s The Illusion of Gaia, Square’s Secret of Evermore (the only Square title designed by their North American team), and Atlus’ Persona: Revelations (re-localized and re-released on the PlayStation Portable as Shin Megami Tensei: Persona). Other rarities include Konami’s gory Castelvania: Bloodlines, Rare’s Battletoads + Double Dragon (which isn’t included in the upcoming Xbox One title The Rare Collection), and Contra Hard Corps for the Genesis.


Fans can get their hands on rarer titles like Mega Man Legends 2 for the hefty price of $69.99 without a PowerUp Rewards Pro membership. Other titles are priced similarly to what you might expect from eBay or Amazon – with titles like Bushido Blade 2 representing the low end of the spectrum at $12, while games like Chrono Trigger sit on the higher end of the spectrum at a staggering $89.99.




Those who aren’t enthusiastic collectors might turn to the digital marketplace, where the games are available as downloads for much lower prices than what they’re offered here. For example, The Legend of Dragon is available as a PlayStation Classic title on Sony’s PlayStation store for $5.99 and Chrono Trigger is still available on the Wii’s virtual console for just $8.00
